The problem of fantasy
Suppose you have Jordan Zimmermann, pitcher for the Washington Nationals, on your fantasy baseball team. Wouldn't you always root for him? Whoa, not so fast. If he is pitching against your favorite team (St. Louis Cardinals, in this case), you have a dilemma to deal with. On the pitch shown above, Yadier Molina hit a ball up the middle that scored two Cardinal baserunners.
When I was in this situation Wednesday, I just tried to forget Zimmermann was on one of my two fantasy teams and rooted for the Cardinals like I always do. It was tough though, let me tell you. What do you do in a case like this?
